    I've used it - pretty much a generic all around creole type seasoning. Not bad, but nothing to write home to Mama about either.

    Used it once before I read the lable ;)
    I was going for a blackening crust and put it on really heavy but made the fish waaaay to salty :(
    Flavor wasn't bad though.
  • Gotta’ go with Fidel’s comments! Not bad…But… :whistle:
    I like to put together my own rubs and spice blends that “fit” my tastes.
    Here are two along the same lines as “Tony’s”, but are of my “home spun” versions. They have WAY less salt and WAY more flavor.
    We all (around my kitchen anyway) like these two REAL well.

    DAD’s CREOLE – ESSENCE

    Makes about 2/3 C.

    2-1/2 T. paprika
    1-1/2 T. salt
    2 T. garlic powder
    1 T. black pepper
    1 T. onion powder
    1 T cayenne pepper
    1 T. dried leaf oregano
    1 T. dried thyme

    DAD’s CAJUN – ESSENCE
    Makes about 1/2 C.
    3 T. paprika
    1/2 t. cayenne pepper
    1 T. garlic powder
    2 t. oregano
    2 t. thyme
    1/2 t. salt
    1/2 t. fresh pepper (white if you have it)
    1/2 t. cumin
    1/4 t. nutmeg

    Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container
